Tom’s Food Market in Traverse City Donates Thousands of Pounds of Chicken to Local Charities

Boxes and boxes…of chicken. It may not look like a lot when it's in these boxes, but it's going to make more than 15,000 meals, and it's all going to local people who need it the most.

The Father Fred Foundation is just one of many charities getting a piece of this donation. They say it's coming at the right time. During the holiday's Father Fred's pantry needs all the help it can get, so it's a special boost for this time of year.

It's the season for giving, and this local market is chipping in to make sure no one goes hungry.
